Ski slopes barren as lack of snowfall continues; Boston to stay temperate

This season of below average snowfall looks to continue through this week. Computer models indicate no threat of significant snowfall over the next 7 days. This is not good news for skiers and boarders who wouldn’t mind a little fresh powder. These conditions are in stark contrast to last year. According to the National Weather Service, the average depth of snow in ME, NH, VT, and upstate NY is currently 9 inches, which is 16 inches less than last year.

Although this is not good news for the slopes, sunny skies and above average temperatures may help console heartbroken Patriots fans. This week, high temperatures will soar well above Eli Manning’s impressive 30 completed passes. Overnight lows will not dip nearly as low as the Patriots Superbowl points total of 17.
